    The Great Quake How the Biggest Earthquake in North America Changed Our Understanding of the Planet by Henry Fountain is a wonderful history and science book that I enjoyed thoroughly Two subjects I love and earthquakes are exciting and scary at the same time It was interesting to find out about what life was like in Alaska before the qu

    When I saw this cover, I knew I wanted to readabout the great quake in Alaska on March 27, 1964 The earthquake that I can remember seeing the images of houses lifted in the air while roads sunk several feet below right down the street The subtitle is How the Biggest Earthquake in North America Changed Our Understanding Of The Planet and this book

    When I was growing up in the early 1960s my grandfather was corresponding with Maurice Ewing and William Donn of the Lamont Geological Observatory Gramps had been interested in their work since 1958 when he read a Harper s Magazine article by Betty Friedan called The Coming Ice Age about their research.I didn t know that Project Moho, drilling cores in the

    I first saw the author of this book on CSPAN s BookTV, and thought it sounded interesting Also, I can remember watching the news coverage of this on my family s black and white TV way back when In this narrative the author does not just cover what up to this point is the most powerful earth quake to happen in North America, 9.2 on the Richter Scale and second most po

    I received this book through a Good Reads First Reads Give away A very entertaining read, Fountain covers not just the earthquake that struck Alaska on March 27, 1964, but also explores the evolution of the theory of plate tectonics and the history of several of the communities e.g., Anchorage, Valdez, and particularly the small village of Chenega hardest hit by the devastatin

    Other than required earth science books in school, I have never read anything related to geology I ve never found earthquakes particularly fascinating so I m not sure why I signed up for this book s Goodreads Giveaway However, I was pleasantly surprised with a great book on the biggest earthquake in North America.Mr Fountain wrote in a narrative style It was engaging and easily followed

    A fine book, well written, with interesting characters and human drama This might be a good present for teenaged aspiring scientists, but only if the scientist s parents don t mind you putting ideas into their heads about heading out to remote areas of the world which, even today, may not have a cell phone signal but may have terrifying earthquakes at any moment And bears But I also felt that the

    I picked this up to read because of my intense and many times irrational fear of earthquakes figuring this might help ease some of my terror by providing some scientific background and explanation of earthquakes While it was a great read, and I was absolutely fascinated by everything I read, it did nothing to help quell my fear If anything, I amconcerned for friends and family on the west coast than I was

    Thanks to Crown and Edelweiss for the advance copy I was somewhat familiar with the 1964 Alaskan quake, as a friend lived through it, but it was interesting to hearof the geology and geophysics behind it Rather technical in parts, but worth the read.

    Originally published at Reading RealityThe heart of the book The Great Quake, is literally the great quake itself The narrative, based on interviews with survivors and with the geologist who ended up making the quake his life s work and a bit vice versa come literally at the 50% mark of the book.What comes before and after is a layperson s guide to the geology that causes earthquakes and the development of the scientific theo
